WATCH: Dan Stevens in New Movie ‘The Ticket’

It’s been three years since Dan Stevens crashed that car into a ditch, breaking the hearts of Downton fans around the globe. Since then he’s left lovely, honorable and ever-so-slightly stuffy Matthew Crawley well and truly behind, going on to play increasingly morally conflicted characters instead. There was “David,” a murderous ex-soldier and the result of a failed […]

WATCH: Julian Fellowes on THAT ‘Downton Abbey’ Car Crash

There’s a lovely interview with Julian Fellowes at the Radio Times, in which he explains why Dan Stevens’ exit from Downton Abbey was quite as brutal and sudden as it was. In the U.K., the fateful episode was broadcast on Christmas Day, which rather took the shine off the 2013 festive period, especially for fans […]

Walt Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast is already topped up with a handful of our Anglo favorites, including Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, and Dan Stevens. Why stop there?

We won’t be bringing every new casting choice from Disney’s live-action recreation of their own classic cartoon Beauty and the Beast to Anglophenia readers one name at a time, but this newsflash is just a little bit special. So, we currently have our beauty, in the shape of Emma Watson as Belle. We […]

There’s a nice interview with Emma Watson in the latest issue of Total Film magazine, in which she describes the challenges involved in taking on the role of Belle in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast (alongside Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens).

It’s Official: Dan Stevens is a Beast

Well, THE Beast, technically speaking, and not the one from the X-Men. Yesterday we were cock-a-hoop with the news that Luke Evans is in talks to play the rotter Gaston in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and wondering who would get to don the hairy mask and play the Beast, opposite Emma […]
